This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal. This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century. These are tiny earrings.... yet the antique image is perfect and crisp and a close up photograph shows how perfect the craftsmanship was on the original seal.

This seal features the image of a beehive with a swarm of bees around it. Bees are the symbol of industry and diligence.

The earrings measures approx. 9mm across the top. This is approx. however as each pair are handmade and there may be small variations.

The earrings are made from sterling silver and this includes sterling ear posts and sterling silver butterfly backs.

Wax Seal Jewelry......
Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations.
Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.
